This wouldn't be a problem if Simon Bar-Sinister caused all the water in the world to DRY UP! But we'd have a different problem, now, would we?
Since Simon is a cartoon character, we have no fear of that other "problem." But we also should have no fear of the ice-free planetary conditions since the Business As Usual (A1F1 = RCP 8.5) global warming future will not be met due to lack of fossil fuels that can be profitably mined or extracted; still, we should expect to reach about 550 ppm CO2 by Century's end. That will give us minimum 3 to 4 degrees C (5.4 to 7.2 F). Now how much sea level rise will we get?
At 3 C warming, about 25 meters, which yield 80 feet.
